GreenCare for Troops volunteer Larry Burklund of World of Green, Inc. in Lincoln, Nebraska never sought attention or recognition for volunteering to take care of the lawns of deployed military personnel. He simply felt it was the right thing to do and a way to give back to those who sacrifice so much for the country.

Burkland did, however, receive a special gift from a member of the 67th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade of the Nebraska National Guard that he proudly displays in his Lincoln office. The gift is a flag that flew over brigade headquarters at COB Adder in Tallil, Iraq during this members deployment.
